Vivaspin® Turbo 15 PES is a 15 mL capacity ultrafiltration device and an exceptional choice for the fastest sample concentrations. Your sample is often the result of several months’ research and we know how valuable it is to you. That’s why we have designed Vivaspin® Turbo range to ensure the highest target molecule recoveries. Together with the complementary Vivaspin® Turbo 15 RC devices, you can benefit from the best solution for optimal retention and recovery. In addition, the large active membrane area ensures highest speed concentration or buffer exchange.

Options with RC Membranes

The same super-fast device is available with RC membranes, in Vivaspin® Turbo 15 RC. This enables convenient user optimization to achieve the highest recovery for any target molecule. The unique choice of PES or RC membranes ensures that Vivaspin® Turbo will provide the best performance for all sample types.

Principle of Operation

Centrifugation generates the transmembrane pressure required to clear solvent and microsolutes through the PES ultrafiltration membranes, enabling the separation of macromolecular species from solvent, primarily on the basis of size. Centrifugal ultrafiltration is particularly appropriate for the concentration of macromolecules from low volume samples, and can also be used to purify molecular species or for buffer exchange.

Polyethersulfone (PES) Characteristics

The polyethersulfone (PES) membranes in Vivaspin® Turbo are offered in a broad MWCO range to suit most target molecules. These membranes are preferred for their low fouling characteristics, exceptional flux, and broad chemical and pH range compatibility.

Sample Capacity

Vivaspin® Turbo 15 PES can handle up to 15 mL sample volumes in swing bucket rotors and 11 mL in fixed-angle rotors accepting 50 mL centrifuge tubes.

Optimal Design

The design of Vivaspin® Turbo 15 has been optimized with a sleek internal profile and large, twin vertical membranes to ensure maximum process speeds right down to the last few microliters.

Complete Sample Recovery

The UV joining technology ensures a smooth transition between membrane and plastic housing, so that the complete concentrated sample is collected in the unique pipette-friendly angular dead-stop pocket.
